Had an early dinner here on Oct 20th. Moderately busy but not crowded. Service was prompt and meal was good. As noted in other reviews, dining room is dated and needs updating. Food was well presented and tasty, though not outstanding. House margaritas are OK,...More

What a diamond. Stumbled on the spot for a quick margarita before Pikes Peak and had such a great time we came back for a late lunch. Staff was fantastic as were the appetizers. Well done y'all.
